I’ve got tendonitis again, and I know why. I’m feeling stressed and sleeping with my hands curled under my chin. This coupled with too much fine gauge knitting always gets my right wrist, forearm and shoulder acting up.
Last time was actually a godsend, because I was diagnosed with hypertension during my visit with the doctor where I intended only to figure out how to treat the arm and wrist pain. Note on the hypertension: I felt ok, but my blood pressure was 165/110. Not bueno. But I digress.
Where were we? Oh yes, tendonitis. At least I know what to do this time. All super dorky.
I’ll do it all. I really will. Compliance will be my middle name.
So I’ll put aside the pattern for the little layette that I’d really like to crank out. And that cashmere scarf I’m knitting for someone special will have to wait.
If I can’t knit, I guess I’ll have to read about knitting, and yesterday I grabbed just the thing at Lyon Books in Chico.
Brave New Knits by Julie Turjoman. Gorgeous photography by Jared Flood, and 26 patterns from all my favorite knit bloggers including; Isolda Teague, Stephanie Japel, Norah Gaughan, Clara Parkes, Grumperina, and even a beautiful scarf by my boyfriend, Jared Flood. Ok, Jared isn’t really my boyfriend. Because. Um. You know. But at least one of us is madly in love.
Do share what you’re reading knitwise, because I need to know, people. I’m out of commission for at least two weeks here. Pretty please. Thanks!
